The area
Address
Neighborhood: Exarchia
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).

We came in and just ordered two tequila shots. The generous bar tender tacked on peanuts and chips free of charge. Wonderful service!

Right on lively Exarchia Square, thus quite good for people watching, if one chooses to sit outside, is the recently opened 'Blue Bear' Cocktail Bar. It is on the ground floor of the well known 'Blue Condominium', Athens' first apartment building (1933). Even Le Corbusier found this an attractice construction, when visiting the city. The now over 80 years old house has though lost in the meantime its once famous blue colour, with which it had originally been painted over.

I had been there for an after dinner Greek coffee, which was not of the best quality, and then thought that I should have ordered an espresso, here from Lavazza. With the coffee I had a glass of tsipouro, which was served with a small bucket full of ice cubes and a separate glass of tap water, also with ice cubes. Service by the waitress was correct, but not overly friendly.

After enjoying transcendent vistas and sunset on nearby Strefi Hill it was great to repair to this fine hostelry on atmospheric and traffic-free Themistokleous Street.

After sunset the tree lined street and its lighting were relaxing to experience from our outside table.

Coffee and cappuccino accompanied by light snacks were an ample pick-me-up. With cheerful friendly staff plus fine value, it was an agreeable stop-off.

Helpfully staff, beautiful interior. Fun patio to sit on and people watch. Too bad the bathrooms weren’t in better shape.
